SHERPA & SHIRE • 100% Marquésa Lana®
Absecon is very proud to be the exclusive supplier of Marquésa Lana branded polyolefin fabric and we are pleased to offer you, our valued customers, availability of this long trusted product. As some of our long-time customers will know, Marquésa Lana is the polyolefin fiber that was originally used to weave our Sherpa and Shire upholstery fabrics. With the unfortunate demise of our primary yarn supplier in 2009, only unbranded yarns were available. This is the reason we are so enthusiastic about reintroducing Marquésa Lana in our Sherpa and Shire fabrics.
Don’t settle for ‘look-alikes’. Marquésa Lana is available exclusively through Absecon Mills and our proprietary yarn suppliers.
Manufactured in the U.S.A., Marquésa Lana polyolefin is an environmentally friendly product as well. It entails a mode of manufacturing that not only prevents damage to the environment, but actually reduces the carbon footprint by utilizing waste products from gasoline manufacturing. It is a byproduct of post-industrial waste and its manufacture produces no waste product. Additionally, it is a low temperature product, so it requires less energy to produce than other types of yarn. Its built in resistance to staining and wear eliminates the need for after market stain resistant finishes. It is recyclable and has high heat production upon incineration. It is unique in its utilization of conservation methods from inception to disposal.
